There’s currently a cluster of Chicago artists being recognized for their inventive variations on psychedelic-sounding R&B and hip-hop (The GTW, JODY, The-Drum, etc.). One such emerging act is mysterious songstress Dre Green, whose husky pant combines Lana Del Rey and Marilyn Monroe with its whispered sexiness. Today, we are proud to present an exclusive premiere of Green’s debut album Only One, a smoky, steamy confessional wherein Green sings about longing, paranoia, impatience, and all the other convoluted feelings that accompany love and lust. Green’s lyrical content is matched by the beautifully melancholic production, courtesy of Chicago producers like Jeremiah Meece of the aforementioned Drum (whose Lo Motion label is behind the release), Supreme Cuts, and Hawaiian Gardens, whose fluttering “Walk Right Through” is a highlight. Listen to the EP below.
